That isn't really the grown up version of Roy
'cause Hughes exsists in that story called "Roy's Holiday". I planned to translate it but it<--the book, I borrowed it> was nearly due and the story was soooooooooo long.
Anyway, I'm gonna translate the "The 13th storage room" once I can get all the novels~

Is possible, could someone please take a look at my post on page 2 ;o ...I just wanted to know what this "novel" is ;x . Is this novel after or a part of the manga?
No, the novel isn't after the manga nor a part of it. It is authored by someone else, although the illustrations are drawn by cow-sensei herself. There are currently four books now....
1st book: The land full of sand( includes short story "The 13th Storage Room")
You should know the story of this if you watched episode 11, 12 and 37. It's about when Ed and Al travelled to a village where someone faked there names to do research of the philosopher's stone at the village's master. The village was once rich with gold, but in these years, they became poor so the village's master hired a lot of alchemists to do research. The short story is just something that makes me laugh at....about the East HQ getting messed up because of Black Hayate...
2nd book: The Kidnapped( not really kidnapped, but my English isn't good enough to think up another word) Alchemist
Some bomb bandits attacks the land! But every time a bomb is gonna explode, they give out a signal in the radio 20 minutes before, and every time no one gets hurt. What is their real purpose? Anyway, in the first chapter, Ed meets Roy on the train talking to girls, Roy ignores Ed, and Ed used is "papa-calling" attack to ruin Roy's perfect date-_-;; That part was hillarous.
3rd book: Hill of White Flowers
When Ed and Al finished eating in a restaurant one day, they found that they don't have any money left. When Ed went to the bank to get out some cash, he found out that his bank was frozen, why? One word: Colonel. Roy wanted them to finish a mission he's been assigned, go to a town and write an observation report. Ed and Al arrived at that town, it was a rich little town with the basic law of alchemy "Equivalent Trade" as the village's law. It looks good in the light side, but in the darker sides of the village lies a dark secret.
4th Book: Under the faraway sky( includes the short story Roy's holiday)
Ed and Al met an old friend from Riesenbul in their trip, Peter. Peter's father is a doctor, so he wants to be like his father. He travells to a village and settles there in a hospital. But time seems to have done something to Peter, and Ed doesn't like it. What was the difference between them after so many years?
And Roy's holiday, kind of hillarous, with ARMSTRONG BIG PUMP and ELIZIA ATTACKING HUGHES!
